I have a trip coming up for my sister's wedding at the end of November. She bought the plane tickets for my son and myself. My grandmother is paying for the room but I didn't know that the rest of the trip was going to be so expensive. So I told them we couldn't go. i definitely am unable to afford anything other than my basic bills and some days not even that. I told them everything so they are completely aware how broke I am. So my sister's fiance called and said we'll make it work. They are letting me use one of their cars and they'll pay for the entire trip for me and my son they just want both of us there.
I told everyone that I'm not letting someone pay for our entire trip whether they can afford it or not. I feel like trailer trash charity case and a complete failure. I wouldn't be able to look anyone in the eyes and it would be a disaster.
My sister and I have never gotten along and I'd only be going because I'd like to see my Aunt and cousin and his kids. I just can't afford it and I don't want to go either. My dad is pressuring me to go because he says since I don't have to pay a cent I'm going. I'm thinking, I'm an adult. if I don't want to go I don't have to.
What would anyone else do? Would you let someone pay your entire way no matter how you felt?

All the effort & insistence on you going is because they Really want you there. You should go. It's the right thing to do. Leave the sour grapes at home & live a little! Your child will cherish the memory I bet. Family is important. Especially to kids.
